Marzena NowakBORN 1977, Piaseczno
Marzena Nowak's inspiration comes from memory and imagination; she creates in her work a tangible tension between autobiographic references and the poetics of dreams. Nowak achieves a similar quality in her installations and videos (Dad, 2005, Avenue of Roses, 2005). Wiesław Borowski wrote of her films, “It’s the practice of whispering, of tenderness, but not devoid of strong expression either.” Nowak is a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, with a degree obtained under Prof. Leon Tarasewicz in 2002. She lives and works in Vienna and Warsaw. She won the first prize in the 6th Eugeniusz Geppert Competition.
